Could Summer Break Democrat Control over the State of California?

California Governor Gavin Newsom has pulled out all the stops to retain his governorship in the wake of an upcoming recall election, including bribing voters with the promise of free stimulus money. However, the hot summer months could reduce his plans to ashes unless he is able to miraculously fix California’s regular, ongoing power outages.

As one journalist aptly noted, people who can’t turn on their lights as they vote are going to hold Governor Newsom responsible. As the Democratic Party is opting to throw its support behind Governor Newsom, a successful recall would see a Republican candidate take control of the state.

Supporters and opponents of Governor Newsom all acknowledge that he’s in for a rough ride this summer. The largest three investor-owned utility companies in the state are expected to shut power off to hundreds of thousands of homes in the hot summer months. Records from last year show that more Californians experience power cuts than the year before, although these cuts were shorter than they were in 2019. Rainfall is at historic lows in the state, which means that blackouts could be coupled with water restrictions and horrific wildfires.

Governor Newsom’s supporters are blaming the problem on climate change. They add that Californians know the governor has been dealt a bad hand, and isn’t responsible for either the hot weather or the failure of companies such as PG&E to cut trees near power lines in order to prevent blackouts and fires. However, many Californians are likely to remember the fact that their governor referred to shutoffs as “the new normal” in 2019 before reversing course and blaming utility companies for the problem.

There is also the fact that many voters look for someone to blame when things go drastically wrong in their state. Governor Newsom would likely be blamed even if he may not be at fault for all past and future power outages.

There is no way to accurately predict the result of the upcoming recall election. What can be said for sure is that Democrats who are so confident of winning may be in for a surprise if the hot summer months bring about more power cuts, water shortages, and horrific wildfires. If Governor Newsom cannot show better leadership skills than he did during the COVID-19 pandemic, even his handouts may not be enough to keep him in power.

According to California law, if Governor Newsom cannot win at least 50% of the vote, he will automatically lose his governorship to the person who got the most votes in the recall election, even if the individual in question does not get 50% of the vote. In any case, the individual in question is certain to be a Republican.

  1. Oh, please! How is it CLIMATE CHANGE FAULTS? You got to be pretty dam stupid to believe that! California get your head out of these democrats butt! It not CLIMATE change FAULTS! It your governor wasteful spending! Man can not control climate change! That come from the one who CREATED THE WORLD! This is just a mental issue these leftist want you to believe! SO DON’T THINK NEWSOM KNOW HE THE PROBLEM IN CALIFORNIA AS IS THE REST OF THOSE LEGISLATION IN THE OFFICE! DON’T BELIEVE THOSE EPA fool either! To stop forest fire you have to clean up the dead stuff! You will see that the truth! Dead wood and pile of straw is the fuel of a deadly fire! Same with lot of leave on the ground! So CLEAN UP THE FOREST AND REMOVE THE LIAR!

    1. Wait, wait, wait… do you mean to tell me all white people aren’t racists and that our Mexican border isn’t secure and that all Americans don’t support blm and antifa? Say it isn’t so.

  2. Thank you Wyatt..climate change my ass!! The entire world is in peril because of White Superemacy, racism, and climate change.
    It’s like a broken record when these foolhardy Dems open their mouth, and just listen to the crap that comes dribbling out each time any of them talk, and as the country already knows, Dictator Newsom
    is just one of the lying lowlifes of whom I speak.
    We can only hope the residents of CA boot this asshole to the curb for his iron handed STUPIDITY. He’s an insensitive, immoral, indignant bastard who thinks nothing of his constituents. And to top it all off …… this prick thinks he’s cute
    Cute like a pimple on my ass

    1. If you all don’t know it Gavin Newsome is the nephew of Nancy Piglosi, so the Californians have another problem on their hands. She is holding the whole country to a standard that SHE thinks is right and good for all. She has Schiff, Schumer, Nadler, Waters and a lot of other demonrats backing everything she says and does. If the people of California get smart they will find other more qualified representives to fill those shoes. Get rid of the dead wood in Washington and the governor’s mansion and they can enjoy some better times as we all may after the Washington swamp is cleaned out

      1. It doesn’t appear likely the sheeple of CA will get smart. The smart ones have left the communist welfare state.

  3. As we all should know by now, climate has been changing since the earth was formed. It is nothing new. Neither Newsom or his former Democrat governor did a thing to be able to store rain water, which everyone in CA knows we must have. And since we already have too little electricity let’s make everyone forced to eventually purchase an all electric car? Where is that electricity going to come from? Clean up the hills, the forests, so that fires don’t have as much to burn. Save the poor animals who make their homes there. Save the people and their homes. Money was spent on politicians pet projects instead of preparing for yearly disasters. Get the bums out, not just Newsom, but Pelosi, Waters, and all the rest of them beginning with Biden, the crook.

  4. After spending decades working in aerospace, defense, and NASA programs you learn many facts about our environment, solar systems, etc. For the climate control nuts out there, there is one big problem, that big yellow fire
    ball know as the “Sun” is a classified as a yellow dwarf. With space telescopes we have placed in space they watch the life cycle of this classification of “stars” aka Suns, our sun more than 1/2 way through it’s life cycle, everyday it expands further, burning hydrogen, then will burn off helium, and then it will one day be out to Mars’ area. So either get on board to find other Earth size planets to explore, or get over it!!! It is the way of the universe and creation, “we are here for awhile, just not for a long while!”

    1. Well the power companies would do a lot more maintenance if the State of California hadn’t requested the power companies to fall over themselves to provide “renewable energy”. Guess where a good share of there budgets go.

    2. Yes. We, the people are only passing through this world. We occupy it for a short time and then are gone.
